“GREAT TIME IN WELLS!!!”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

Driving along Route1 , my girlfriend & I liked the location of this motel. Near bargain stores, restaurants, trolley route. The owner knew the area quite well and recommended many places and things to do that were all excellent. Being from the area for a long time is an advantage when it comes to knowing what is good and bad.The room was great, a few steps from the pool, nice restaurants nearby. the rooms were and linens were very clean. AC was in the room but not needed. It was a nice say for a walk, so headed to Ogunquit and visited the little quaint harbor of Perkins Cove. Lots of nice shops and restaurants. We decided to come back here again next year, Highly recommend.

Was traveling on a tight budget this July 4th Holiday. Enjoyed a $99 rate for a decent sized room with one queen bed. The room was very clean, well maintained, and perfect for my needs. The carpet looked like new. Check-in was quick and easy, the room was ready early. The air conditioning was on prior to my arrival, so the room was nice and cool. (It was 90+ degrees outside) the room had a good sized mini fridge, and microwave, a small table to eat at, and a spotless bathroom. The mattress was comfortable, and appeared new. Cable TV had a great selection, and the wi-if was free and easy to connect. The motel also had an outdoor pool which was well maintained, very clean and clear water. Easy in and out with built in stairs.

On the downside, however none of these items would cause me not to stay in the future: The room was not equipped with a do to disturb sign, which would have been helpful when sleeping in late. Also, the room door has two small windows at the top portion which have no curtain or blind to close. As a result, light from each passing car shines on the upper wall. (I was in room #3) I would ask the owner to look at that minor flaw. I would also have liked to have seen a safety chain or safety bar on the door in addition to the deadbolt. Lastly, and this is just a personal preference, the bathroom would be more comfortable with comfort height toilets with elongated seats. The toilet was low and very small.

I wanted a quick trip to the beach to enjoy the end of summer and came upon this place on some Wells web site. $79 was a bargain, it had a pool (pleasant little space) and you could walk to the beach, plus it had trolleys into Ogunquit. The better move was to just walk 25 min into town (Ogunquit can be qutie a zoo and best to leave the car in the hotel). The place is very old school but fine, mostly clean, lots of channels on the TV, little fridge (but the freezer didn't work) and being right on Rt. 1 wasn't loud at all. I would have given it 4 stars had I not discovered a couple hairs turning down the sheets, which along with the towels weren't so great quality. Overall tho, it was fine.

We stay here a few times a year, it is very affordable & very clean. The area is great, right in the middle of everything you need. Staff is always helpful. The rooms below you can hear people above but for the price it is still a bargain.... We could stay elsewhere but we always find this to be the best bang for our buck.... Just stayed here first week of July & going back in September...

They ad on the street said 59$ for the night.

Me and my Girl-friend went to check it out. We asked for a quiet room, so we got one opposite to the street (US 1) who is under the the one facing the street. The only draw back, that we did here (not loud, not often) the people upstairs of us. There a nice pool, free ice and free wifi. The room and a mini-frige, microwave and a dehumidifier. Bed ware okay.

Over all great value for the bargain price.

after driving all over the area and checking out several hotels who claimed to have wireless or high speed internet we stopped at this place and questioned them at great length that internet was very important to us. we were assured that it worked great and it worked fine for about an hour then the owner went home and his replacement came in and the internet never worked again the entire night. the first time i went to the office to complain the front desk clerk was on her computer downloading large files. no wonder the internet didnt work huh. the rooms are very basic. and it is very dark and creepy outside after dark. the pool is not heated. the tv in the room was the smallest i have ever seen. maybe a 19" and i think the floor was more comfortable than the beds. do yourself a favor. make sure and do lots of homework and research before you plan a trip to this area. they tend to charge top dollar for low quality budget hotels. this hotel screams 60's-70's retro. the mini fridge in the room has to be from the 50's and doesnt work well and then they have a dehumidifier in the room to try and smother the moldy smell in the room.

Stayed for a week and had no problems with this hotel. Staff were always helpful and the room was more than adequate and very clean. TV had many channels, microwave, fridge, good air conditioning and internet access. Great value for money and would recommend this hotel to anyone.
